Teach with Special Collections

The Special Collections Research Center welcomes the opportunity to work with undergraduate and graduate classes, and we are especially glad to introduce new researchers to archives and special collections.

We can help your students:

Please contact us using the form below, or email library_specialcollections@ncsu.edu to discuss how we can support your teaching, including class visits to the archives, course assignment design, and other ideas.

Note: Contacting us early gives enough time for planning and ensures a more engaging experience for your students.
